Product innovation at EMO


MAPAL is presenting a series of new cylindrical shank reamers with brazed cutting edges at the EMO. The special feature of the FixReam 700 reamers is their high usability thanks to an expansion system. A tool can be reground up to twice before new cutting edges have to be brazed in. After that, it is possible to regrind the tool twice again, then to replace the cutting edges again and regrind the tool twice more. One reamer therefore has nine tool lives. Compared to a tool without expansion function, tool costs can be reduced by up to 15 percent. Thanks to new, patented geometries, users achieve up to 30 percent better roundness and cylindrical form as well as improved chip removal compared to other cylindrical shank reamers.
